PLAYING DIVIDE AND CONQUER HAS BEEN THE ENGLISHMAN'S CUP OF TEA . . . BUT THIS TIME, IT IS NOT WORKING.
Futsanglung says Wallace was opposed by half of the Scottish people, which is not true. What was true was that the English army consisted half of Scottish warriors turned into English vassals, and of course, were used to fight the real Scottish army, as part of their usefulness is to die in lieu of their English masters, while taking another Scottish life with them in the process. But, how is that different from the English contingency in the present referendum. One million of the voters are born in England or other countries but allowed to live in Scotland by the British government, and surely, they number about equal to the Scots who for some reason are beholden to their English masters, of about another million, so that their composition today of 50% Scots and 50% Englishmen, has not really changed much. But the rest of the patriotic Scots, 4.3 million of them, out of a total of 5.3 million, are solidly behind Salmond and the pro-Independence Movement. I am glad Fatsu has given me this opportunity to point out that the hand that stole the sovereignty of Scotland is the same hand that still refuses to return it today.
The truth is NOT that half the Scottish people were against Wallace, no way, not even one tenth! The truth is that half of those used by the English to fight the Scottish patriots were fellow Scots, just like the way Lawrence of Arabia used fellow Muslims in the form of the Arabs to fight the Turks and defeat them.
William Wallace allied himself with King John of Balliol who was in a contest with Robert the Bruce for the throne of Scotland, and to their eternal regret, they ASKED KING EDWARD I to arbitrate between them, thinking, as most Scots who love England do today, that the English crown would be fair and above all would be civilized in its mediation. Neither happened.
And that is the source of the TRAGEDY OF SCOTLAND to this very day, that it has to struggle for its independence that it owned before King Edward I was invited to play referee amongst themselves. The fight between Scottish Labour Party and the Scottish National Party falls precisely into this ancient mold. This gave Gordon Brown some IN on the Referendum of the Scottish People, to divide their vote against each other, using their party loyalties to divide their national sovereignty.
As it happened, King Edward I demanded to be given the title "Lord Paramount of Scotland" before he would hold a meeting of the Scottish nobility in the castle at Berwick-upon-Tweed, where he actually sided with King John Balliol, in November 1292. However, John Balliol renounced his fealty to King Edward I in March 1296, and was forced by King Edward to abdicate after being defeated at the Battle at Dunbar in East Lothian. Loyalists to John Balliol, such as Wallace and Moray defeated the English army at the Battle of Stirling Bridge on September 11, 1297 (bad omen for the English troops). Moray died from wounds sustained in the battle, however, and Wallace became the sole Guardian of the Kingdom of Scotland. King Edward I counterattacked in April 1298, and defeated Wallace at the Battle of Falkirk, whereupon Wallace resigned as Guardian in favor of Robert the Bruce, Earl of Carrick, and John III Cromyn, Lord of Badenoch, a nephew of King John Balliol.
William Wallace was thence no longer involved in military operations, and when he visited Robroyston, near Glasgow, he was captured by John de Menteith, a Scottish noble loyal to King Edward I. He was therefore not even a Prisoner-of-War but simply a hostage of an illegal kidnapping operation, by an opportunistic Scotsman, in short, a victim of treachery. William Wallace was later brought to Westminster Hall where he refuted their charges of treason, saying he was never the subject of Edward, but was of John Balliol.
On August 23, 1305, William Wallace, also known as Braveheart, Guardian of the Scottish Kingdom, was stripped naked, dragged through the streets of London by a horse, hanged till half alive, emasculated, eviscerated, and drawned and quartered, and beheaded. His head was placed on a pike atop London Bridge. His four limbs were then displayed at Newcastle upon Tyne, Berwick upon Tweed, Stirling and Perth. This is the story of how a hero of the Scottish people was betrayed by some, not all, not even half of his countrymen, even if half of the army of King Edward I was filled with traitors, as it the English custom to divide their enemies and rule over them, to this day.
Let August 23, 2015 be the 710th Anniversary of the Martyrdom of William Wallace to be memorialized and immortalized by a sacred rite of prayer and homage of the Free and Independent people of the Republic of Scotland!
To the streets! To the polls! Free Scotland, NOW!!!
